Bio and Links
Bio Photo Lived in Southern California for the 10 years and returned home to Northern Ireland in 2010.
I have researched my own family history finding so much information helping me to understand who I am today and finding cousins in England and the south of Ireland.
I know how difficult it is to build up a family history and am glad when I can help others by taking a photograph of a headstone since many kind people have helped me along the way.

Gravestone Photo Permission
I am happy to see that you photographed the gravestones of Jeannette Alvord and her daughter Carol Visser (Memorial# 52443868) in Pacific View Memorial Park.

I would like to add these gravestone photos to the (non-profit) Alford American Family Association's collection of California Obituaries, where their obituaries will be included. You can see the current collection at

May I have your permission to include your gravestone photos? If so, the photo caption will say:

Photo from [cemetery name, city, county, state]—
Permission granted by the photographer, Stephen Hopkins

And thanks so much for your gravestone photo work!

Best regards,
Pamela Alford Thompson (Find A Grave #47195155)

RE: Roy Leonard Piel
Just found this! Purely by accident! Roy Piel was my husband's uncle. We visited with him many years ago when he lived in Upland - he was a great guy! We loved him! Since I've had so much difficulty with this website, please email me: - I'd love to hear from you. Julia Conkey in ID.

Thank you so much for posting this photo of my aunt and uncle's gravestone. Are you a relative? I am trying to find their son, Ronald Piel, who is 'challenged' and last known to be living in Orange County, California. We now live in Idaho and no living family there in Southern California. Thanks!

I wasn't sure if there was actually a gravestone or not. I recall my Grandparents telling me that he was buried there. My grandparents said they had no money to buy him a headstone and just left it as it was since he died at birth. This is something I will do for his gravesite. At least he will have some type of memorial. Do you by chance have the location of this grave? I don't get down to this area much, but it would be nice to know where he is located. I could ask the office, but thought you may know.

I am very interested in the Hopkins family line and have come to a dead end on my research past my Grandparents. This helps me so much.

Thank you so much for taking the time to do this for me! It is greatly appreciated and your an angel for helping me add this to my Ancestry.

Thanks again, wonderful job!

Thank you very much for sending me this head stone picture. Mr. Basurto has been a mystery to me and my family. He was my father's father in which he didn't get a chance to really know. This picture is like finding a piece to a puzzle that is hard to complete. Thank you for your time and effort. You are a saint! God Bless you.

Hey Stephen, I added a memorial for Kouko Barhydt, which was the other name on Earl's gravestone photo that you add to Earl's memorial page. And I was wondering if you could add it to her memorial at 52684411.

Thank again
